  1. The Best in Historical Fiction

    I agree with this. My problem was that I had decided to read it straight after writing a dissertation on Crommers and the Henrician Reformation, so I needed something new to look at. Wish I could find my copy now... My favourite historical fiction is Katherine by Anya Seton (yes, it's a historical romance, but it's sooooo good!). I also really love The King's General by Daphne du Maurier.
  2. That POV character you could care less about

    Bran, Davos, Selmy, Jon, Samwell
  3. Thank you guys, I shall look these up!
  4. I am about to start teaching American history from 1870-1914. I know nothing about this so having to do a lot of homework over the summer. I'd like to read a well-written fast-paced piece of fiction around the time period. Anything to do with the American civil war, the expansion into the west, slavery, or Native American/West relations would be fab. Love a bit of dark romance but I suppose it isn't essential.
  5. [Book Spoilers] EP303 Discussion

    I really loved this episode - best so far! Loved Edmure and Blackfish - Blackfish being exactly how I imagined. Loved Dany. Loved Sam and Gilly and hated Craster. Loved Hot Pie. REALLY LOVED Tywin, Tyrion and Cersei in the same room together like WHOA! And most of all, I very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very much loved Jaime!
  6. You love me really, guys. And I would read a sample, but... nerh...
  7. Your unnecessary jab is really making me want to read your book right now.
  8. Jamie's reaction to Aegon

    I don't see Jaime striking an alliance with any king other than his son. His primary concern at present is to finish his business in the Riverlands and return to protect his son, as either his Kingsguard or his father. At no point does allying himself with either Stannis or Aegon achieve this.
  9. The future of Jaime and Brienne?

    See, I really want that dream to just show how much she now loves Jaime. I've had similar dreams about the men I like and want to be with, but can't be. I want it to show her desires and fears, not some prophecy. It has to. It just bloody has to. LOL!
  10. Who Indeed? (AND WHY?)

    History, indeed. It isn't a very religious place. Catholicism makes the Seven look like the sweetest religion there ever was. The religious tolerance is fairly incredible, too. This idea that 'we follow the new gods' would be totally unacceptable to people of the Middle Ages. In their mind, there's one god, and there's always been that god, and anyone who says otherwise deserves a painful death as a heretic and an eternity of hell. This is why I am not convinced the prince would win over in Westeros. The Red Priest might, however - since R'hollar is based on the puritan faith, imo, and they were very hot-headed and intolerant at times.
  11. Who Indeed? (AND WHY?)

    It depends on the time period. In the sixteenth to seventeenth century, which is my period of study, it would have been the priest. Europe was in the throes of hyperreligiosity - what The Church/Bible said was law (according to whether you were C or P). Now, it would be the richest man. We are obsessed with the pursuit of commodities. Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Alan Sugar etc etc. have become very rich by our need to possess. In the days of the British Empire, when Englightenment meant the decline of religion but colonies gave us an innate sense of nationalism, it would be our King. This led to WW1, ultimately, with one great king and his men against another, against another. In Westeros, it is slightly harder to say. I would agree with Varys, in some ways.
  12. Vote : Who will rule westeros?

    Danelle, you always come up with such wonderful ideas. I haven't thought about this, but actually it sounds quite nice. Tyrion would disguise his real identity from Dany, because he knows how she would react to his Lannister name. He would need to convince the Second Sons to keep his identity secret mind, but I believe he could do this. I think Tyrion could really mature Danaerys, by informing her of her inheritence in a non-judgemental but non-whitewashing way. Whether she could actually love him at first, I don't know, it would take time. She seems to care for aesthetics and physical prowess. Drago was the beautiful Dothraki warrior; Daario, the exotic and alluring sellsword. It would need to be a very different type of love, asexual at first. I think he could love her almost right away though - in the same way he loved Shae. The idea of him betraying her for Jaime would be the best, too. I need to see them reconciled in an epic, sacrificial way (though, if they could both survive that would be great too!) Plus we know from Qaithe that she has to beware the lion - maybe this is why.

    That depends if the Targs are recessive or dominant genes. They wouldn't need to be dominant genes for the legitimate Targs as they wed brother to sister anyway. But you're right, it does weaken their case. -phew-

    The Lannisters and Baratheons did marry at some point, and produced dark-haired children (Just as is the case mostly with our gene pools, though it didn't work for me). Varys is just Varys. I think at some point, either Aerys or Rhaella showed him an act of kindness that he had never known and for that reason he remains loyal to their dynasty. I really hope he is not a secret Targ. As to the dragons, I think a bond must be created at some point between dragon and rider, just as there is sometimes unique bonds between horse and rider (I would like to think there is one between me and Bay, but when I sat someone else on him for the first time ever, he acted the same).
